Six months ago, Microsoft released the first sync applications for SkyDrive, which makes it easier for users to manage all their important and personal content on SkyDrive. The apps are available for Windows and Mac OSX, along with Windows Phone 8, Android, and iOS devices.
Some users of the SkyDrive apps were not impressed due to certain missing basic features that should have been present from the outset. One of the features that topped the list was selective synchronizing, and as it stands now, Microsoft is bringing that feature forward in a new update.
Selective synchronizing allows users to choose which folder they want to synchronize with SkyDrive. Previously, the SkyDrive app would synchronize everything, which wasn't exactly intuitive. The new update also allows users to right-click on a file to view or share on SkyDrive.com.
The Windows Phone 8 and Android version of the application is getting updates as well, but does not boast of anything that is truly impressive. Windows Phone 8 version now gives the user the ability to search for files and folders, there is also a change in how things look and feel. The Android version brings support for all file types on a SD card, along with the ability to rename files and folders.
The updates will be available everywhere in the next 48 hours; however, one doesn't have to wait until they get an update prompt. Interested users can visit SkyDrive's Web site and download the latest version.
